Our Deck Needs Some Shade!
After enjoying our new deck last summer, the Library staff and Trustees have decided that the deck would be a more comfortable and welcoming place if there was some shade from the sun. Samyn D’Elia Architects, who designed the new addition, generously donated the design for a new pergola.  
 
 Click on these two links to see the sketches showing the proposed Pergola!
Holderness Free Library - East Elevation with Pergola
Holderness Free Library - South Elevation with Pergola

 
The pergola will be built out of red cedar and provide partial shade to much of the deck.   If more shade is needed, we can add vertical slats on the top of the vertical boards.  The Library staff and Trustees welcome public input to this design and would appreciate any feedback.  Please communicate your thoughts to Library staff or a Trustee.

The Library Trustees have requested that the Select Board release $15,000 from the Library Improvement Capital Reserve Fund, which currently has a balance of approximately $48,000.  This request will be voted on at Town meeting on March 14, 2018 as a separate warrant article.
